Subterranean Termites & Drywood Termites

Termites are the most destructive insect in the world. They cause billions of dollars of property damage in the United States alone. For this reason, it is important to have regular Termite inspections as well as Termite treatment. Termite control serves an important purpose in nature, consuming and breaking down dead wood and hastening its decay.

However, in an urban environment, termites infest homes and feed upon lumber, drywall paper, cardboard, furniture and any cellulose material causing considerable damage. Man made structures are an ideal food source for these insects as well as providing a much needed water source from irrigation systems. There are two types of destructive Termites: Subterranean Termites live in the ground and burrow into wooden structures where as Drywood Termites require no contact with the ground. Drywood termites are normally found in hot climates such as Tucson and the surrounding areas where as the Subterranean species is found throughout the U.S.

How to Identify Termite Infestation

Termite colonies thrive in wooden structures and furniture where they consume wood and wood-based materials, creating chambers and tunnels as they advance. Signs of Termite infestation include tiny feces pellets resembling wood, mud shelter tubes (Subterranean) which are created as they eat, and piles of wings which are shed as they mature. These signs can be found on and around exterior or interior walls, around drywall, furniture and in drop down ceilings. Termite damage can compromise structural integrity, and cause sagging floors, ceilings and walls. Their tunnels can also provide access to moisture, causing additional water damage.

The method for Termite control depends on the construction of a home as well as the personal preferences of the homeowner.
